About Skyler


Bio

My tutoring experience began when I was a sophomore in college studying chemistry and physics. I have tutored over 40 students in all aspects of Chemistry, Physics and Calculus and taught both semesters of general chemistry at OU. Many of my students are straight out of high school, but some of my favorite students have been those who came back to college for a career change.

My tutoring experience began when I was a sophomore in college studying chemistry and physics. I have tutored over 40 students in all aspects of Chemistry, Physics and Calculus and taught both semesters of general chemistry at OU. Many of my students are straight out of high school, but some of my favorite students have been those who came back to college for a career change.

As a graduate student in Biochemistry with a degree in Chemistry and minor in Physics, I am able to help with almost any college level science course. Many of my students have found it convenient to have the same tutor for several different subjects. It has been fun to watch them apply the skills we developed in one course to another.

I usually tutor groups or individuals for one to two hour sessions, often meeting weekly. I encourage groups to help each other before I meet them. That way everyone gets some free tutoring, and it helps us get the most for our time during the paid sessions with me. To save even more, be sure to call the WyzAnt phone number above to ask about purchasing a package deal.

In general, I'm available weekday evenings after 6 or by appointment on Saturdays. I answer texts and emails as soon as I can and will take calls if I'm available. This can come in handy for last minute questions before homework deadlines or exams.

I always look forward to meeting new students, and I hope you find the best help you can get.

I have been tutoring general chemistry every semester since Fall 2010. I have had lots of practice explaining complex chemical principles in simple terms that students can understand. I make it a point to model for students the thought processes that should be applied in order to make intuitive connections between principles, equations and applications. Many students have asked me to work with them through both semesters of general chemistry since they cover such different material. They found it very convenient to continue with the same tutor for chemistry and physics.
Physics

Physics

Most physics students have the most difficulty knowing where to start. My physics students learn a problem solving strategy that not only helps then know how to start the problem, but also keeps work organized and greatly helps them catch errors before declaring a final answer. This strategy is valid for any level of physics whether it's kinematics, electricity & magnetism or quantum mechanics. It has also been useful for engineers taking statics and dynamics classes. I used this technique throughout many of my physics classes. Most notably, I scored top of my class and in the 93 percentile in the nation on a standardized quantum chemistry test because I used this method regularly throughout the semester.

Knowledge and extremely patient

Skyler knew every question that I asked him, and if he didn't know off the bat he made sure to find the answers. He didn't get irritable with the many questions that I had and we had great conversation as icing on the cake. I recommend him to anyone looking for help.

Knowledge and patient

I have only visited with Skylar once, but my first visit with him was wonderful. He answered all of my questions, and even made up some problems for me to work out. I was very impressed!

Morgan, 8 lessons with Skyler

Patient, knowledgable, and excellent tutor

We went over homework and conceptual problems dealing with electric fields and charges. Helped me raise my test grade more than 15 points on the second exam. Look forward to working with Skyler in the future.

Zach, 8 lessons with Skyler

Knowledgeable

He explained the general idea and walked me through the steps I need to follow in order to reach my goal. He tries and make sure that you are confident on what you are doing. I really recommended him for tutoring.

Jory, 2 lessons with Skyler

Best tutor I have ever had!

My second year tutoring with Skyler. I will be tutoring with him all through college. Best tutor I have ever had!

Caden, 33 lessons with Skyler

Patient and knowledgable teacher

He taught me on how to improve my chemistry skills. He showed me what i was doing wrong and fixed it.

Trey, 17 lessons with Skyler

Great in every way!

I am a freshman in college majoring in engineering. I was taking hard classes and I owe it to Skyler for helping me pass every single one of my "weed out" classes. He's easy to get a hold of and he cares about every single one of his students. He communicates in a way that is easy to understand and he is just a great person.

Terrific tutor!

Thank you, Skyler! Your availability on such short notice was very much appreciated! My son was very satisfied with the coaching you gave him on precalc! You can be expecting another call! Thank you!

Benita, 1 lesson with Skyler

Very Accommodating and Helpful.

Skyler was very good to work around our schedule. He could help us with almost any chemistry question we had. Whenever I saw him outside of class he would help me with any questions I had. Skyler really cared about if we were understanding the principals in our class and was concerned for how we were doing in the class.
